Fees and how it works

Everyone’s different, so contact me to confirm a quote. I sometimes offer discounts at less busy times, particularly if you are local to the Surbiton area.

My 2022 fee for a naming ceremony is £300 (Sunday-Friday) or £475 (Saturday)

This includes:

  • Intro chat by phone/Zoom
  • Discovery meeting (usually around 60-90 mins) at agreed venue <10 miles from KT6, or via Zoom
  • Access to my library of readings, music, symbolic rituals and vows
  • Development of your bespoke ceremony script based on our conversation
  • Unlimited edits
  • Full support in creating your parental and guideparent promises
  • Finalised script delivered 2 weeks before ceremony
  • Leading your ceremony on the day
  • Keepsake copy of the ceremony script (PDF and printed)
  • A commemorative certificate if you’d like one
  • Full public liability insurance
  • A year’s free membership to Humanists UK.

It does not include:

  • Mileage – for travel further than 10 miles from KT6.
  • Overnight accommodation if needed (depending on location)
  • Any additional face to face meetings if required
  • Any props required as part of the ceremony (to be provided by the family)
